Block Captain Program
The Rolling Hills Block Captain Program is a city-sponsored, resident-based community program. Block Captains are volunteers and their primary role is to get to know neighbors, help them to prepare for an emergency and be a liaison between first responders and City of Rolling Hills during an emergency.
Why Is the RH Block Captain Program Important?
The Palos Verdes Peninsula, including Rolling Hills, is designated as a Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone by the State of California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. The Block Captain Program is modeled after the strategies, principles and best practices published in FEMA’s “Whole Community Approach to Emergency Management (2011)”. Block Captains proactively partner with the City of Rolling Hills, the Rolling Hills Community Association and the first responders – LA Fire Department and LA Sheriff.
Who is my Block Captain?
Block Captains are designated throughout the City’s 24 “zones” or neighborhoods. There is an average of three (3) Block Captains and one (1) or more Block Captain Support volunteers for each zone. There are approximately 50 homes in a zone.
